Earthquakes and Indonesia

I keep on forgetting that the various islands of Indonesia are located in the infamous Ring of Fire. This causes some of the greatest volcanic eruptions, as well as strong earthquakes. It is recorded that majority of the earthquakes and some of the greatest earthquakes in magnitude occur in this region.

Even today, in the news it was reported that a 7.6 magnitude earthquake on north coast of West Papua struck and killed some people.

I am constantly reminded to pray for the nation of Indonesia.

It is through the international news events about a earthquake in Indonesia that makes me think – “What would it be like if God was to send His Spirit in Indonesia like a violent wind or earthquake as He did in the early church?”

“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.” (Acts 2:2, NIV)
